  • Como nós tratamos Artrite do Joelho

    We always look to restore proper alignment and function to the knee joint, regardless of the cause. Proper diet, exercise and weight loss are part of the healing process. If the degeneration is too advanced, the pain too severe and conservative treatment is not helping, one can have a knee replacement which, these days, is very successful and most often provides immediate relief of knee pain. It is best to not reach that stage but we must accept our physical limitation from time to time.
